Tony Campolo - Don't Miss the Point

I got this link of an interview with Tony Campolo today on a yahoo group that I frequent. It was great. One of my favorite sermons ever was the time my pastor impersonated Tony doing one of the sermon's that he is most famous for called "It's Friday, but Sunday's Coming".
In the discussion that followed the sharing of this link, my friend Jenny said she loves it when Tony shares this with groups:

"there are [some number] of children starving in this world today, and most of you don't give a sh*t ... and what's even worse, most of you are more concerned right now about the fact that I just said sh*t than that I just said there are children starving."

Sometimes we just miss the whole point.


  1. "A yahoo group I frequent" that's it huh??? I see how I rate :P

    I'm giving you a hard time girl :)

    I saw Carman in person when I was teen, I have the tape somewhere... Sunday's on the way. Do you know what I'm talking about?

  2. Oh my gosh I am LOL'ing did you watch the *know a lobbyist* skit, I am losing it. The Campolo guy didn't do anything for me, but I'm not a democrat :)

  3. Tony Campolo drives me crazy but I get his point. Mostly.

  4. I love that quote. I wonder how many people caught themselves when he said that.

  5. I loved Sundays Comin' so I'm going to check out this link.

  6. Oh wow, I got mentioned in another blog, I am somebody! :)


Awaiting your words......
